If you thought your dentist in Southgate was just here to look after your teeth, then think again. Here at Adams Dental, we do wonderful things with your teeth, it’s true, but we also apply our skills and knowledge to encompass other treatments. Let’s take a look at what other help you can access here at your dentist in Southgate:
If you regularly suffer from bad headaches or migraines then make an appointment with the dentist in Southgate. We will check your jaw joints to find out if you have TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. If you are clenching your jaws at night or grinding your teeth, we can often help by making you a bite guard to stop you doing so. If you don’t spend all night clenching your jaws, you may well find you have fewer headaches and migraines.
Anyone who has ever shared a room with a snorer knows how disruptive they can be. It’s not fun for the listener and the resultant feelings of shame make it not a lot of fun for the snorer either. Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the upper throat when you relax. The dentist in Southgate can help with snoring by supplying you with a bespoke device that you put in your mouth before sleep. It holds your lower jaw slightly forward so that there is less pressure at the back of the mouth and you can breathe without your throat vibrating.
Bad breath can blight your life and make a lasting negative impression on those around you. Bring your bad breath to us at Adams Dental and we will do our best to find the source and sort it out. Bad breath has several causes, from tooth decay and gum disease, to diet and as a symptom of more serious problems.
We carry out mouth cancer screenings to detect the early signs of tumours, which grow fast in the mouth. Mouths cancers are directly linked to smoking, drinking alcohol and obesity. If you are aged over 35-40, you should have a mouth cancer screening at least once a year.
